Sideline test for concussion
Sideline test for concussion (February 28, 2014 - Insidermedicine) From New York - A sideline vision test can be successful at diagnosing concussion, according to a report present at the American Academy of Neurology's annual meeting. Researchers studied over 200 US college athletes from either a football, soccer or rugby team. Participants underwent the King-Devick test--a one minute test in which the athletes read single-digit numbers on index cards--upon suffering an in-game head injury. When combining results from the test with Standardized Assessment of Concussion and the Balance Error Scoring System, researchers correctly identified 100% of the concussions.
